Here’s a revision of some doodling I found in an old journal from 2005. It starts off with an admonition to myself based on recalling some sound advice from an ancient preacher, John the Baptist.

Be not
Righteous in
My own eyes–
Do unto
Others as I would have them . . .

For the Father has promised
Victory to the humble
(not the religious)
Those
In whose hearts
Praise leaps up for grace
Free
To the human race.
